Kyosho SuperTen FW-04
 
All about the superten series. Hard to find car

MikaR 06-22-2010 04:10 AM

It's not manufactured anymore.. that's why. It's from 2002, Inferno GT has replaced it since. Not exactly the same but now more and more K cars are being based on Inferno MP75, Inferno GT is one of them.

Oh that suxs. Its such a nice looking kit even though it doesnt look too high tech comparing to the recently released Kyosho cars.

1smexyAP2 06-22-2010 07:31 PM

anyone knows where to get one? or knows someone that's selling one or knows someone with connect for this kit?

Look under "Kyosho Superten" in ebay. There are several including this one....

http://cgi.ebay.com/KYOSHO-Super-Ten-10-SuperTen-HONDA-NSX-LM-GT1-Vintage-/250615347630?cmd=ViewItem&pt=Radio_Control_Vehicle s&hash=item3a59d6b9ae

Pricey though!

The HPI Super Nitro RS4 a great alternative and much cheaper.

1smexyAP2 06-22-2010 10:18 PM

Yea I was looking at that too. The prices is a bit pricy and also its a fw-03, I found one but at $629.90 + $71.10 for shipping is a bit crazy

1smexyAP2 06-24-2010 01:24 PM

anyone knows where to find one?

The FW-03 is much better than the FW-04
They both share same chassy but the wheels on FW-04 is way bigger..
and it is hard to find replacement tyre for it.. unless u willing to pay nearly $100AUS doller for a set of 4 each time(off ebay)...
the fw-03 can be use the HPI SNRS4 super size rims and tyre which they still avaible now and quite cheap...
i have 3 superten's in my show room... 1x FW-04 + 2x FW-03
one of my FW-03 is brand new never on road..
i just put them all togethere in last year and it store in the box since then..
it is a Porche GT1 SuperTen GP(FW-03)
comes with no engine ...
throw me an offer and it might be ur....

hard to find....tell me about it! i was always on the hunt for fw04 stuff, for 2 years i was collecting parts and accessories for the fw04 and finally i found a brand new FW-04 for $200 here in sydney! picked it up, built it with a combination of collected parts and what i had on my race fw-04 and built this beauty!

it has all sorts of goodies that you want on this car plus more!

* OS 4 stroke .26 with race pipe - good luck finding this with the conversion kit!
* kyosho hard chassis
* carbon top plate
* carbon steering plate
* special steering crank
* Ti turnbuckles with HD ball ends
* alloy shocks
* universals front and rear
* ball diffs front and rear
* stabilizer bars
* 2 speed with braking centre one way
* cooling fan - good luck finding one of these!
* special racing clutch - the 4 stroke melts through the standard clutch in 10mins. this eliminates the problem - good luck finding another!
* viscous coupler
* MIP boost bottle - not required, just looks good installed!

pics are sh!t i know, thats iphone quality! i will try get some good ones later with my digi cam.

oh, and btw, before you ask - its not for sale!

I wish this class would come back into popularity. I actually think I liked watching them race more than racing my own(HPI Super). I dunno, it seemed more realistic than the 1/10 touring class.

IMHO, big-block conversions and the resulting high horsepower big-block .15's killed the class. They were perfect with small-block .15's like the O.S CVR 15 and HPI's Nitro Star 15.

nitro dave 07-24-2010 06:47 PM

The 4 stroke was the most reliable engine I ever raced with. Puts out the same power as the old cx12 os (.5 hp) put enough torque to pull Christ from the cross!!! I ran a 1 hr endurance race against another fw04 with a .15cvr and I ran consistent, no flame outs, 2 less fuel stops and the engine came off the track cool. The .15cvr was opposite.

This engine is about 6-7 years old, never rebuilt and still runs today! It doesn't get used often but still runs as normal.

If kyosho re-introduced the fw-04 class (would never happen) I would not hesitate running it again.

we should go on a strike!!! i think seeing the few of us screaming at the top of our lungs (BRING BACK FW-04) would get them to reconsider ;)

Very nice indeed!

Inferno GT2 is today's FW04 :nod:
With proper gear you'll make it almost as sexy. There's are new parts available that make it a worthy onroad.
